It has mediocre food and slow service. A lot of Mexicans work there but faces change every couple of months. food isn't really a good example of Mexican food.

We were there for a lunch and ordered off of their lunch. The food is very acceptable, but not outstanding when compared to Mexican restaurants in other places.

We come here all the time! Great Mexican food. Chicken nachos is great, chicken on the beach is great, fajitas are great... staff is not the friendliest but not the rudest either. Usually pretty fast service too.

Great Mexican restaurant. ... it is the place to go for a family, sit down dinner. Service is speedy They quickly push together tables for larger parties. You barely sit down before the complementary chips and salsa arrive. I recommend the enchiladas, tacos, or burritos....More

This place offers the best Mexican food around this small, rural area for fairly cheap prices! It's definitely my favorite restaurant around!

It's exactly what you'd expect in a Mexican Restaurant. Good food prepared quickly. It's a good place to go to grab a margarita and a plate of chicken on the beach

Awesome place to get real Mexican food without breaking the bank. You have to try their taco salad. I usually spend $6 including my drink and I can't eat all of it. They give you plenty to eat.
